President Barack Obama’s name will not replace John F. Kennedy’s on a New Jersey town-owned building after all.
The township council in Willingboro on Tuesday voted 5-0 to reverse its decision to rename the recreation center after an outcry from those opposed to the change, including alumni of the high school that once inhabited the building.
Willingboro is a largely Democratic town that strongly supported Obama in the 2008 and 2012 elections.
The building opened as a high school in 1966 and was named for the assassinated 35th president. It’s now owned by the township, used as a recreation center and undergoing renovations.
Councilman Nathaniel Anderson apologized to the crowd of 200 at the meeting. He said that he failed to think through the change. (AP)
